President Buhari Reacts To 'Pressure From EU, U.S, Others On Second Term Bid'

Mr. President has responded to a story making the roundabout pressure from the United Kingdom, the European Union and the American government on his second term bid.

If you have seen or read on social networks stories about the European Union, American government and some other nations asking the Nigerian President to jettison plans of running for a second term in office, President Muhammadu Buhari wants you to know the truth. 

He says it is a tendentious story that requires a necessary response.
A spokesman for the President, Femi Adesina, in a statement responded to the publication which was a cover choice by Daily Independent Newspaper under the headline, 'Pressure mounts on Buhari not to seek re-election.

"We thought the fake news was the sole preserve of the social media in this season.
"Alas, a traditional medium has caught the bug. Obviously, the author of the story just got a brainwave, or got procured by anti-democratic elements, and then penned the mischief.
"If there are quarters in which President Buhari is held in very high esteem, and the work he is doing for Nigeria highly lauded, it is in the countries mentioned.

"Some of them are equally bastions of democracy, and will not interfere in the democratic affairs of a sovereign country. The newspaper should simply tell its story to the marines".

"He gave deep thought to the prospect, before announcing his bid for a second term in office.
"It is only those who fear that their goose would be cooked if they meet with him at the polls, that is trying to dissuade him from running by all means, including sponsored newspaper stories.
"By saying it got feelers that President Buhari may opt out of the 2019 presidential election,
